On Friday, October 11, 2019, ImageFIRST offices throughout the country participated in their annual Community Giving Day. This year, the theme was "Making a Difference, The ImageFIRST Way."
The tradition of the annual ImageFIRST Community Giving Day began in 2015, making this year the fifth year of participation. As is tradition, each participating ImageFIRST office embodied this theme by selecting a local charity with whom to partner for the day.
This year, the Corporate office based in King of Prussia, Pa. chose to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia (BGC) again. In true fashion, the team of 40-some associates came ready to work.
BGC's mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The group's vision is: Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia will become one of the premier Boys & Girls Club organizations in the country, solidifying its position as the leading youth guidance and development agency in the community through quality staffing, facilities, and programs supported by financial stability and clearly defined standards.
Executive Vice President of Programs, Partnerships, and Development Libby Lescalleet provided the associates with a long list of to-dos, which they took as a personal challenge to complete.
During the 4 hours ImageFIRST associates spent at the Walnut Street location, they cleaned, painted and weeded the outside, painted the 3rd floor and set up for a party, organized and cleaned the teen room, computer room, janitor closet, front desk, and inside basketball court, decorated boards, put together art kits for other Boys & Girls Clubs locations, and put together snack bags.
The ImageFIRST King of Prussia office has volunteered at several Boys & Girls Clubs locations throughout Philadelphia.
ImageFIRST's annual Community Giving Day and ongoing community giving activities are one of the ways associates bring the company's purpose to life: To create a great company by positively impacting the lives of our associates, our communities, our customers, and their patients.
